David Blight on Slave Narratives (WINA, Charlottesville-Right Now!)

David Blight on Slave Narratives, by Coy Barefoot. • "Slave narratives are extremely rare, with only 55 post-Civil War narratives surviving with only a handful of those in the first-person. Two newly discovered accounts and the biographies of the men who wrote them join that exclusive group with the publication of the new book A Slave No More: Two Men Who Escaped to Freedom. The author of the book, David Blight of Yale University, joins Coy Barefoot on WINA's 'Charlottesville-Right Now!' to talk about the work." [18 Minute Podcast]
